VGA to TV problem (contuie)

Thanks for the great helpful answer from here last time. I have another trouble with my laptop to plugin TV screen. I bought a VGA to S-video adapter with RCA on it. Then I follow the guide from last thread. But the problem is I plug in the cable to TV. My laptop show I connected to RCT Screen,but my TV just got some crash screen(black & white double shadow). No matter I change the resoultion from 1024x768 to 640x800 still not working. The s-video cable is fine cause I already tested out with my desktop to the tv. Can someone tell me what is wrong? Should I get a VGA to TV converter to try?

My Laptop information:
Acer Aspire 3004WLCi
OS: Windows XP Pro SP2
Video card: SiS 760M
